Lorraine Versini


Lorraine Versini is a French author now living in Italy. Born in the Côte d’Azur, she graduated in English Language, Literature and Civilisation at the Université Paul Valéry in Montpellier, before moving to Somerset, United Kingdom, where she spent 12 years of her life.

An avid reader, she’d spend most of her free time reading fiction of various genres, until one day she started giving shape to her own stories. Inspired by different authors such as the Brothers Grimm, Voltaire, Molière, Nora Roberts and Thomas Harris, her voice changes from romantic to dark, with a hint of humour.

She is a professional translator and proof-reader. Her hobbies include photography, makeup and trekking.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Difficult question. I enjoy a lot of genres, and when I read, it's more about the story itself than who wrote it, really. With regards to the French classics, I enjoy Voltaire and Molière a lot. I am fond of the Grimm brothers when I'm in the mood for a fairy tale. With regards to contemporary writers, I tend to go for the book rather than the author, so it's quite often that I pick up something from someone I've never read anything from before. But the authors I have seen myself going back to are Jeffrey Kosh, Eric A. Shelman, Mel Comley, Kealan Patrick Burke, Shaun Jeffrey, David Wailey, Kristine Cayne, Darren Humphries, Scott Mariani and Paulo Coelho. This is obviously subject to a lot of additions over time :)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The hope to get something worthwhile done. Most times it happens, but sometimes it doesn't!
